In this Wagner recital, the Dutch soprano, Charlotte Margiono, proves herself to be the Wagner heroine par excellence. The title choice points to a well thought-out concept. The three combined “romantic operas” – Tannhäuser, Lohengrin and the “plot in three acts”, Tristan und Isolde – have an important common denominator: the heroine dies as a result of her doomed love for the hero of the opera. Thus Elisabeth’s death contributes to the salvation of Tannhäuser, Elsa pays with her life for her lack of trust in Lohengrin, and Isolde – surely the most sublime of Wagner’s female characters – seeks certain death in order to be eternally reunited with her lover Tristan.
